Description

Circa 1900, unusual carved oak, neat sized sofa with Indian or Burmese influences from Skibo Castle. It is profusely carved and has a reeded, foliate designed top rail above small uprights with flower heads. The curved, reeded arms are interlaced with foliate carving and it has removable crushed velour cushions above a padded seat in the same fabric.
Standing on foliate carved, curved legs with scrolls to the top and finishing on bun feet.

An inventory number is underneath the sofa and it was made for Skibo Castle, Dornoch, home of the steel magnate Andrew Carnegie.
